Exploring Balboa Park With Ron

After picking up my buddy Ron from his downtown hotel, we drove over to Balboa Park to meander around a bit and to go see the Titanic exhibit showing at the San Diego Natural History Museum. It was my second time (so far) seeing this particular exhibit. Since no photography of the displays was allowed, you will have to either use your imaginations or just ask Mr. Google to show you. (We also visited the Model Railroad Museum, and even though we only had half an hour to see the dioramas and displays, I was able to take more photos and will post that as a separate entry.)

Ron was very impressed with the Park, especially when I told him that most of the beautifully ornate Spanish Revival buildings we saw today have been around (albeit rebuilt or refurbished) since the 1915 Panama-California Exposition. We will be coming back here again in five days for his final visit this month and will then be focusing more on the 1935 California Pacific International Exposition portion of the Park, mainly the old Ford Pavilion which is now the Air and Space Museum.
